A Real Education


Recommended Posts

According to a Sun Sentinel news report, a certain private school in

South Florida was recently faced with a unique problem. A number of

12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in

the bathroom.

That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press

their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every

night the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back.

Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She

called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the

maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a

major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every

night. To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors,

she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was

required. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet,

and cleaned the mirror with it.

Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

There are teachers, and then there are educators.
